the eyes of the american cameras. we, in the u.s., are creating the conditions of terrorism bring strategic benefits while the path of non-violence leads to a dead end. what a sorry legacy for everyone involved in helping this come to pass. i want to bring in congressman steve cohen, democrat from tennessee, hussein senior fellow of the american task force and heather, former special adviser for president clinton and the policy planning team, now executive director for the national security network. this is my take away from the incentives that have been created in the region. hussein, i'm curious. as someone who is a very outspoken advocate for a two-state solution, if this is how you see things as well? >> i think, to some extent. >> feel free to disagree. >> i tell you where i did disagree, i think overall, your analysis is correct. the structure that has been created does, certainly, encourage palestinians to think negotiations, diplomacy and cooperation are a dead end and all the p.a. has to show for efforts are not being able to pay salaries of public employees which they pay in west

this point of view, it's sound analysis. what message is the israeli government and u.s. government that supports it sending when it makes choices that result in hamas being able to point to their victories and leaves president mahmoud abbas totally impotent. here's the lesson, as far as i can tell, if you recognize israel if you're committed to nonviolence you'll get roled, marginalized, undercut and left looking like a loser. if you fire rockets into the heart of israel, kidnap their soldiers, they'll negotiate and adjust their policies. everyone i've talked to on the palestinian side sees this disparity. none other than hamas political leader explicitly cited abbas's sorry situation in an interview on wednesday. >> translator: mahmoud abbas gave this opportunity to israel and the international community. what did they do? they made him fail, they let him down. >> in allowing this to continue, in refusing to pressure the israeli government to take concrete steps towards peace in the west bank, they're turning a blind eye while unarmed protesters are imprisoned, tear gassed and sho

panel to investigate the attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in september. we will be talking about both those stories in-depth on tomorrow's show. but right now i am joined by george gale, executive director of nation people's actions, which advocates for racial and economic justice, heather mcgee, vice president of the progressive think tank, new york democratic congressman and friend of the show jerry mather and msnbc contributor joy reed, managing editor of on a conference call with donors this week, portions of which were posted online by abc news mitt romney blamed his loss to president obama on what he calls gifts the president had given to core democratic constituencies like students, women, and latinos. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> just note that, you know, doesn't actually cost any money but side point. romney's framing of the president's campaign strategy is

the way of greece. >> this is where i disagree with hakeem. we ran this experiment, the u.s. versus europe over the last 25 years. we grew 63%. france grew 35% since 1991. germany grew 22%. japan 16%. we have 35% to 40% more hours of work per working age adult in the united states than germany and france have. this idea that -- >> because we -- >> lower taxes on investors pumps up growth in the economy. it's hard to look the data in the face and come to that conclusion. the shocking difference between the u.s. and europe, it's stimulus spending and government spending and investment. europe would be kicking aur butts and greece would be the poster child of success. it's an unmitigated disaster. >> europe is not just one thing. it's norway and greece. >> yes. >> norway is doing well. amsterdam is doing well. >> you say germany is doing well. it grew 22%. it's barely come out of the recession. we are way ahead. >> the european example is a false example. it's a red herring. not that you are using it. i believe your views are an corresponded in philosophy. politically it's used to say we with

it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practical decisions and give emergency briefings and address the anxiety of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the

status. you have an undocumented parent with a child who is a u.s. citizen who goes and votes. he sees his father being talked about. he doesn't belong here, he should self-deport like arizona is the model of this country. why would you go and support and give your allegiance to a party that speaks to you in the worst possible ways. >> we're going to play this and we'll take a break. this is mitt romney's language on the campaign trail largely in the primary about just this topic. i think it cost him lasting damage. take a look. >>> almost half the jobs created in texas were created for illegal aliens. in state tuition for illegal aliens. people here illegally today. giving tuition breaks to the kids of illegal aliens. almost $100,000 discount. i'm running for office for pete's sake, i can't have i will leels. >> we'll have a lot more to say on this. we'll talk it all the way through. we'll be right back. customer erin swenson bought from us online today. so, i'm happy. sales go up... i'm happy. it went out today... i'm happy. what if she's not home? (together) she won't be happy. use

like. check out this graph of u.s. government from google. these are requests that don't require warrants and this doesn't include the security related requests not disclosed. for awhile, i thought the combination of these trends, the u bik wiity of technology was pushing us to a future where citizens would be unable to keep their secrets while the government keeps its secrets. i feared it would end up totally exposed to each other and the state. the state and its doing and what it's doing in our name would be a mystery. then miraculously, but also inevitably, they collided with each other in the petraeus affair. the four-star general's communications with broadwell reveal a lot of mundane personal failings. really, it seems not anything scandalous as far as the public's fear goes. the only possible scandal, as far as i can tell, is the conditions which the fbi came to read the private e-mails of petraeus and broadwell. the investigation began because jill kelley, an acquaintance of petraeus served as the unpaid liaison in tampa received hostile e-mails that chastised her for fli

research that has shown that walmart-style big-box retailing is responsible for about 50% of the u.s. productivity gains between 1995 and 2005. roughly. >> right. >> in that decade. >> overwhelming majority of which captured by capital rather than labor. >> but the prices have gone down. i think chris framed it really well. >> thank you, chris. >> no, seriously -- this pastoral notion that we're all going to go back to our lovely boutique stores, all of us, in all of our shopping, it's not going to happen, or, indeed, in all of our production, right? we're not also all going to buy all of our food from small-scale farmers. my dad, by the way, is a farmer. he farms our family farm, which is 6,000 acres. small is not viable in the modern -- >> i'm from the bronx, sounds huge to me. >> that's what i'm saying. small isn't visible in the modern tech logic economy. and that is a good thing because we enjoy a lot -- no, no, no -- but wait a minute. there are two problems. and they don't have to be inevitable. one is workers don't have to be exploited and there are laws and social movements,

's demise i showed a graph illustrating the rise in u.s. government requests to google for user information. i said that the 7,969 requests google received from january to june of this year did not come with a warrant. that is not entirely accurate. google does not break out the number of government requests it receives by type or by how many come with a warrant and how many do not. it's likely that several types of the requests google gets such as court or wiretap orders would come with a warrant, while many other requests would not. i regret the error. >>> usually we do now we know in this portion of the show. but since we just celebrated thanksgiving, which also happens to be my favorite holiday, i thought i would take a moment to observe the very important ritual of expressing gratitude. one of my favorite people on twitter, feminist hulk captured the potential of giving thanks this way. gratitude is first step in recognizing privilege. the next is battle oppression that prop it up from hulk's companies beginnings to now. to say i'm thankful i have a job and
